Using modified chemical vapour deposition ( MCVD ) process and the solution doping technique germania doped single mode fibres with additives of Ce, Pb, Al, Y, Er and Nd in concentration of 1000-2000 ppm either singly or in combination were fabricated in long lengths. The fibres were exposed to gamma radiation from Co-60 source at a dose rate of 300-400 rad/min for a total cumulative dose of 8-10 kilo rads at ambient temperature with on-line recording of the induced loss at 1300nm. It was observed that the presence of minor quantities of dopants considerably influences the loss characteristics of the fibres recording highest radiation sensitivity in Nd doped ones while the codoped fibres with Al+Y, Al+Pb and Al+Er have close range of sensitivity around 0.01 dB/Km.Rad.
